NEW DELHI(PTI): The BJP on Sunday demanded “public apology” from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for levelling allegations against Arun Jaitley on the DDCA issue, saying a report of the city government has found no evidence against the Finance Minister.
Party spokesperson M J Akbar said the DDCA file which Kejriwal made his basis to attack Jaitley over the CBI raid and affairs of the cricket body does not name Jaitley. “The truth is out. The report does not name Jaitley.
There is no allegation against him, there is no indication (of wrong doing). The Delhi Chief Minister, we believe, should apologise to Jaitley for his allegations…he should publicly apologise. He should also admit his fault in the court (where Jaitley has filed a civil defamation suit against the CM and other AAP members),” he told a press conference here.
He claimed that after a “conspiracy” by the then Congress government, the Serious Frauds Investigation Office (SFIO) had made an enquiry and found nothing against Jaitley, a former DDCA chief, “though it was a Congress government.” He said in his press conference Kejriwal had attacked Jaitley alleging that the CBI raid was carried out for the DDCA file. “Now the CM himself is trapped…his own team has found no allegation against Jaitley,” Akbar said.
The BJP spokesperson said after the November 15 report became public, AAP is trying to wriggle out of the situation, saying the investigation was not meant to name any person. “But there are names in the report…you don’t run government with tamasha (drama),” he said.
